Creation of the Self-Evaluation Tools
Igor Vitale, a psychologist and international speaker, said, “Teachers’ capacity to manage correctly emotion is determinant for the student’s success, to keep them engaged in the lectures and build their future career. In fact, negative emotions connected with the experience of being evaluated in schools could reduce their motivation to study.“
Indeed, the emotional intelligence of teachers plays a significant role in students’ lives also outside the school. Students at school are going through the process of growing up during which they are being very vulnerable. Hence, teachers should take into consideration not only the student’s academic achievements but also their emotional state at school. In order to do so, teachers should be aware of their own emotional intelligence. That is why now the EMO2C team is aiming at creating of a Self-Assessment tool for teachers.
The wonderful results are upcoming. Stay tuned!
